Appropriately packed with adrenaline rushing action, like its corresponding famous superhero movie Iron Man 3, is the latest single “Let’s Go All the Way” from rock super-group The Wondergirls. Included on the Iron Man 3: Heroes Fall movie soundtrack, the single was inspired by the movie and is available for download now on iTunes. The track features British superstar Robbie Williams as well as band members, actor Ashley Hamilton, Chris Lloyd (former VP/ A&R executive at Flip Records), Jay Gordon (Orgy) and Doug Ardito (Puddle of Mudd). Complete with a star-studded lineup, the group is back to showcase a fresh new image and pick up where they left off – with fans screaming their names.
The recording of “Lets Go All The Way” was recorded over several years, numerous times and every location possible. “We’ve recorded at some of the best recording facilities available, as well as rehearsal rooms, houses, garages, you name it” says Gordon. The song itself has brought this band of friends through unchartered territories and unpredicted experiences. While recording the vocals with Robbie Williams on Super Bowl Sunday, Gordon went to root for his team only to find Adele making tea and watching the game, piercing him star-struck. It’s this type of untraditional structure of recording and experiences around the song that have all influenced this power packed track.
“The original 80’s (Sly Fox) version has its unique character and signature…(but) everyone is loving this version” answers Gordon. The band charged the track with an electric beat that is driven by classic rock drums, crunchy guitar licks and raging synths all supported by refined vocal chops. The superhero anthem stirs up the perfect inclination of raw emotion and energy, which in turn is infused into the listeners. Opening with subtle intensity in the verses, leading to an explosion in the chorus that holds until the end of the song.
In its beginnings, The Wondergirls, who are based in Los Angeles, included numerous notable names such as Scott Weiland and Mark McGrath. When the group first formed, politics held The Wondergirls back from truly capitalizing and flourishing. While filming Iron Man 3, Hamilton felt it was the perfect storm for The Wondergirls to be revived and bring his initial plan into fruition. The Wondergirls recently signed to Across The Universe Records, with an expectant EP out soon.
The Wondergirls have made it clear that they are back and here to stay with music to excite and tantalize their huge and still-growing fan base. Keep up with the super-group by visiting their Facebook page and downloading Iron Man 3’s “Let’s Go All The Way” now on iTunes.
